Paul's Narrative Thought World: The Tapestry of Tragedy and Triumph

Front Cover
Westminster John Knox Press, 1994 M01 1 - 373 pages

It is a common belief that Paul's letters are not stories but rather theological ideas and practical advice. Ben Witherington III thinks otherwise. He is convinced that all of Paul's ideas, arguments, practical advice, and social arrangements are ultimately grounded in stories, some found in the Hebrew Scriptures and some found in the oral tradition.
